“We did get an offer (to star in ‘Pinocchio’) but ‘Pinocchio’ is one of the many works being considered,” Lee’s agency Wellmade Entertainment told a local news outlet.
Similarly, Park’s agency Salt Entertainment said, “We received an offer and are looking into it. … Nothing is for sure at the moment.”
“Pinocchio” portrays the toils and romance of news reporters on the social news desk.
The drama will air from November, following the conclusion of SBS’ two Wednesday-Thursday evening dramas -- “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” starring Jo In-sung and Gong Hyo-jin, and the upcoming “My Lovely Girl,” starring singer-actors Krystal of f(x) and Rain.
